Ramat HaHayal is a northeastern neighborhood of Tel Aviv, Israel. Some high tech firms have research and development offices in Ramat HaHayal.

                                     

1. History

The neighborhood was established in 1949 to absorb demobilized soldiers after the Israeli War of Independence.

In 1954, Tel Aviv municipality donated a plot of land on Golan Street in Ramat HaHayal, dubbed "Shikun Shanghai", to members of the Jewish community from Shanghai, China, who left during the final stages of the Chinese Civil War.

Until 2010, it was widely assumed that the neighborhood had been named after the Jewish Brigade and its name was written in Hebrew רמת החי"ל lit. Jewish Brigade Heights, including in official municipal signs. The mistake was corrected by the municipality in 2010.

Many Israeli high-tech companies, among them Nisko, RAD Data Communications, BMC Software, Comverse Technology and Radwin are located in Ramat HaHayal. IBM maintains a research and development facility there.

The offices of the Israeli television broadcasting company Keshet are in Ramat HaHayal.

In 2002, a monument dedicated to the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg was erected at the intersection of Raoul Wallenberg and HaBarzel streets in Ramat HaHayal.

Assuta Medical Center, Israels largest private medical provider, moved from central Tel Aviv to a new compound in Ramat HaHayal. The upscale facility, with 16 operating rooms, is located on HaBarzel Street.
